Tutoring Forms:
Ms. Poirier would like to remind students to bring in their tutoring forms and to check their schedules for when they have tutoring.  Also, could the members of the winter carnival committee meet in the library today at reading period, please?

National Sweater Day:
This day is a fun way to learn about the importance of saving energy and to inspire people to use less heat all winter. Heating accounts for 80% of residential energy use in Canada and is a significant source of emissions. If all Canadians lowered their thermostats by just 2 degrees

Celsius this winter, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 4 megatons – that’s equivalent to shutting down a 600 mega-watt coal-fired power station or taking nearly 700,000 cars off the road! So, tomorrow turn down the heat and add on the sweaters!!!

Math Tutoring Program:
There will be no math tutoring tomorrow, Thursday, February 1st. Tutoring will resume next week, February 8th after school in the library.
